    Is there no one ready to share answers or clues yet? Maybe everyone has it all figured out already and I'm the only slow one in the bunch!

    Hey Winnie, I there a forum in the UK for this Hunt?

    I'm waiting to order the hard copy. I don't have a color printer at home.

    Are you talking about the questions for bronze and silver or the gold part?

    I am working on my last two questions of the silver part (7 and 5), but still haven't started looking at the gold section.

    Lizzy, you don't need a color printer for this hunt. All the images except the cover are back and white.

    Gabi,
    I'm still working on the silver and bronze questions. I have 6 more to answer, but I just can't find the links. I haven't started on the gold yet. I thought maybe you need the answers to the silver and bronze first to help solve the gold. Don't know.

    I agree that the answers to bronze and silver will help as a starting point for the gold, at least that is what I understand from the poem.

    What I wonder is how picky are they going to be with the answers. Some is pretty obvious that the answer is just one word so there is no doubt there, but what about the ones where the answer is more elaborated?

    I am probably worrying too much about it because of TBTG, but when one of the questions I am having problems with has to do with the Navy, it kinda brings a feeling of deja vu

    Emerald, which questions are you working on?

    The answer is that if it's a more than one word answer we'll be looking for the 'sense' that the answer is right. For example if the question was "Who is the reigning monarch of England?" a full(ish) answer would be "Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth the Second". A 'sense' answer would be "Elizabeth II" and we'd accept 'Elizabeth' if we were pushed

    But you have struck an important point. One answer, in particular, is a one word answer and yet we've had answers that run to a paragraph. The size of the window on the answer section of the website should give you an idea as to the length of answer you have to provide. Oh, and we're not too picky about spelling. Except for that one word answer where it matters

    The good news is that nobody has got all the Bronze and Silver answers correct yet (well, it's good for us anyway).

    One more doubt, in the questions about links are we looking for direct connections or it is something like Jane Austen's father had once a student in his house and this student at some point in his life was a priest at St. lawrence, which makes the link a third degree connection?

    Default View the Cathedral Close

    For anyone wanting to get a feel for Winchester cathedral close you may want to take a look at a landscap appraisal done in 2004. It is a 2.76 m pdf file. Big, but it has nice photos, which is why it is big I suppose.

    Could be, I know the church in Jane's village is named St. Lawrence and that the Dr. who treated Jane has a small memorial in the Winchester St. Lawrence church. That is two rather tenuous connections.

    I am still trying to work out the sound you cannot hear question.
